Pawlenty introduces "ObomneyCare"

On Fox News Sunday this morning, Tim Pawlenty introduced a new word into the lexicon -- "ObomneyCare", which is the fusion between ObamaCare and RomneyCare.

On whether RomneyCare and ObamaCare are, indeed, ideological kin:

"You don't have to take my word for it; you can take President Obama's word for it.

President Obama said that he designed ObamaCare after RomneyCare, and basically made it ObomneyCare, and so we now have essentially the same features.

The president's own words is that he patterned, in large measure, ObamaCare after what happened in MA. What I don't understand is that they both continue to defend it."

Btw, have you noticed that any time a politician's health care program is named after its originator with a "Care" attached, it's pejorative?

You could call Mother Teresa's work "MotherTeresaCare", and her mission's approval ratings would drop into the mid-to-high 30%.
